Pacharee Sudhinaraset is an Assistant Professor/Faculty Fellow of English at New York University. Her current book project studies women of color literary and visual practices as an engagement with utopian/dystopian forms that have been crucial to 1960s cultural discourses of political societies, state practices, and social movements in the U.S. This project demonstrates the ways utopia operates as a primary genre for liberal statist visions for resolving the racisms plaguing urban racialized underclasses; cultural nationalist critiques of those visions; and the heterogeneous archive of women of color utopian writing in imagining future horizons to racialized life and struggle.
